The car runs strong now that I changed the intake gasket, head gaskets, wires and plugs, but I never heard of this screen. I have 125#s of pressure in each cylinder but still smoking in the #8 cylinder. It is a cobra intake with stock heads.

Problem, when the car warms up I still get puffs of blue smoke when I let off of the throttle. Every cylinder each has 125#'s of pressure, and I only drove the car about 40 miles since I changed the screen. Should this smoke clear up after a few miles?

Where does the screen go? Under the PCV valve? Just looked and my car doesnt have one and I have been having some sputtering issues for a while. What would it do if you dont have one?

Yes, it's under the pcv valve in the back of the intake manifold. I changed mine because I was getting oil on my #8 plug and it was full of oil. If you never changed it, I would. I find it runs a whole lot better but I still have a little lingering smoke when it warms up. It's a cobra intake but the stock intake has it also. I don't know what happens if you don't have one, I believe it's to stop blow by.

when you pull the pcv valve stick your finger inside the hole. if it fills like a grill material then you do have one. i had to use my nail toward the edge to get mine out. its not that easy to get a grip on it

My friend is saying the lower intake gasket is leaking, he told me to crank the engine and take the oil filler cap, it was sucking air. I have been changing the #8 spark plug every other week thinking an oil ring was stuck, but it has the same compression as all the other cylinders, any thoughts?

Next time just spray the crap out of it with brake cleaner.

If replacing/cleaning it doesnt help take a look inside and past the throttle body. Grab a flashlight. If the PCV was clogged bad theres a good chance the upper intake needs a good cleaning. The vac fitting pokes thru on the left wall and can be covered with deposits. The hose for the PCV could still have junk in it to.

A little Seafoam perhaps?
